What is Ecstasy Detox?
Ecstasy is the common name for the synthetic drug called methylenedioxymethamphetamine, or MDMA. It is an illegal synthetic drug that acts as a stimulant and a hallucinogen, speeding up the central nervous system and altering the user’s perception of reality. Ecstasy is known as a party drug that leads to mood enhancement, a burst of energy, and a rush of serotonin and dopamine. Coming down from ecstasy is an extremely unpleasant experience, as the user is forced to face a chemical imbalance in the brain and an unhealthy depletion of healthy neurotransmitters.
The most dangerous thing about ecstasy is that its man-made, and typically contains a wide mixture of hazardous substances, including cocaine, ketamine, heroin, LSD, amphetamines, methamphetamines, and various types of rat poison. Because of these dangerous combinations, the user can never really be sure of what they are taking.
It is common for users to build up a high tolerance for ecstasy, which results in dangerous amounts being consumed. High doses can lead to increased body temperature, dizziness, heart palpitations, seizures, vomiting, and sometimes death. Frequent use of ecstasy can lead to cardiac arrest, stroke, kidney failure, and dehydration.
Typically, withdrawal symptoms from ecstasy use are:
- Reduced interest in everyday activities
- Mental confusion
- Inability to perform complex mental tasks
- Sleep disturbances
